Cal Mec Supports Striking Amerijet Pilots
CONTINENTAL MEC SUPPORTS STRIKING AMERIJET PILOTS

Sep. 1, 2009

The pilots and flight engineers of Amerijet, represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters Local 769, have been locked in a bitter dispute with management while trying to negotiate their first contract. In July, the National Mediation Board released them to a 30-day cooling off period. Shortly before midnight on August 26, 2009, management walked out of the negotiations. The cooling off period expired at 1201 am on August 27, 2009; at which point the Amerijet pilots and flight engineers were released to self-help. The Amerijet pilots went on strike at 1630 EDT that afternoon.


Below is a link to the article that the IBT has put out regarding the Amerijet strike.

While Amerijet may not be an ALPA carrier, it is imperative that we support all airline pilots in a fight for a fair and equitable contract. If anyone is in the Miami area and is willing to support the pilots and flight engineers of Amerijet, they will be picketing the offices of the airline 24/7. The offices are located next to the ATC tower in Cargo City at Miami International Airport.The address is:

AMERIJET INTERNATIONAL
6185 NW 18 ST BLG 716-B
MIAMI, FL 33142


Thank you and fly safely.
